14.2 > Misc > dos2unix (7.4.0)

This is an update of Benjamin Lin's implementations of dos2unix
and unix2dos. Benjamin Lin's implementations of dos2unix and
unix2dos are part of several Linux distributions such as RedHat,
Fedora, Suse, Gentoo and some others. On Slackware one finds fromdos
and todos but these implementations are not included. This update
includes all RedHat patches and fixes several other problems.

These implementations of dos2unix and unix2dos have been modeled
after dos2unix/unix2dos under SunOS/Solaris. They have similar
conversion modes, namely ascii, 7bit and iso. The first versions
were made by John Birchfield in 1989, and in 1995 rewritten from
scratch by Benjamin Lin. Mac to Unix conversion was added by Bernd
Johannes Wuebben in 1998, Unix to Mac by Erwin in 2010.

Native language support: Dutch, English, Esperanto,
German, and Spanish.
Automatically skips binary and non-regular files in-place,
paired, or stdio mode conversion.
Keep original file dates option.
7-bit and iso conversion modes like SunOS dos2unix.

Dos2Unix includes:
dos2unix - DOS/MAC to UNIX text file format converter.
unix2dos - UNIX to DOS/MAC text file format converter.
